I painted my 6 x 12 deck with BEHR Deckover paint and it has attracted tons of flies. My deck is around 10 years old and I have never had any problems with flies until now.
I bought a gallon of insect repellant , mixed some of it with water and brushed it on my deck. When it dried, the flies came back and are still after the paint. When the paint was installed, it had a strong ammonia smell to it, but that has since dissipated.
Not happy about the flies but the product is very nice however. I would recommend it to a friend.
